USMLEWorld New UWSA and Final USMLE score correlation?

Hi

I just took the UWSA1 and got a 216/490. I was going through posts and realised that people are getting far higher scores (such as 232 in the final exam and are barely able to get a 84 percentile) Now i know about the change in the 2 and 3 digit scoring system, but i wonder if my score will even add up to a pass.

My exam is in a couple of days. It will be great if some one could paste a link to the score correlation of the new exam format. My cumulative UWorld score is 63% Will I pass?

Default Same here

Hi dear

I went through the same problem ,,

My exam is in 3 weeks ,, I did UWSA 2 weeks ago, got the same as your score 216/490 ,, I was so depressed ,, I reviewed my notes for another week and then I did NBME form 4 , got 228/490 in it

My UW average was 65% ,,

My advice: don't be panicked ,, it happens that UWSA may not represent our expected score in the exam , so it's only to evaluate your performance not to expect your real score ,, just read the explanations well ,, work hard , review your areas of weakness and make sure that did your part of the job and leave the rest for God to handle.

Good luck

Default Fin!

So I took the exam today. It was excruciating to sit through all 8 blocks. Towards the end I had to literally put my head down on the table for 20 seconds at a time to get over the fatigue. God knows what'll happen. I'll even take a 190 today. Must must must pass.
